HAMMERS - Discography (2008-2013)


OK you need to check out HAMMERS. Dark, heavy and tough as nails. If you're reading this blog, you might as well just go ahead and download everything. And that's easy because Hammers is one of those awesome bands that WANTS you to download everything. Everything's available on Bandcamp and they urge you not to pay. Fucking brilliant. Some of their earlier records might be tough to find, but you should be able to get their latest 10" fairly easily, there's a link above that I know will have some.

Here's the bad news. They called it quits in March of this year. You win some, you lose some. But it doesn't mean you can't listen the shit out of their music. Here's a description of the band, by the band, that I found from last year. It's better than anything I could write about them:

"Hammers is a band from Manchester, UK playing a pretty unique mix of punk/hardcore/metal/crust - maybe we're like His Hero Is Gone jamming songs off the first Mastodon record, or maybe we're just trying to write songs that are interesting and heavy first and foremost. The genuine intensity that ensues is just an atmospheric coincidence.. we're people who have played in numerous bands over the years, including stints with The Secret, Anxiety Attack and Funeral Diner (very briefly). The Vardøgr 10" is a weird one, but definitely recognisable as being HAMMERS. It's fast, sometimes slow, tons of melody but always just as heavy as we can possibly make it. The record was produced/mixed by Brad Boatright of From Ashes Rise, and he's done a star turn in creating a real dark atmosphere throughout it."
